SFX students aiming to ‘Be Merciful’ in 2016
WITH the Year of Mercy underway, St Francis Xavier College (SFX) in Florey will focus on what it means to be compassionate, forgiving, kind and sympathetic in 2016.
The school’s religious theme for the year is ‘Be Merciful’, and it is hoped that mercy will permeate the interactions of students with each other, their own families, and the wider community.
The opening year assembly served as a chance to introduce the school’s new leadership team, led by Brianna Gibson and Aodhan Kirk (College Captains) with the assistance of Jake Braithwaite and Chantalle Lebutte (Vice-Captains).
Getting students involved in extra-curricular activities and encouraging them to embrace the opportunities presented to them at SFX are the key goals of the leadership team.
“I just want SFX to experience a breath of fresh air, resuscitate the morale, and get excited and proud about SFX… not just come to school because you have to, but because you want to,” Brianna said.
“I’m really keen, in terms of leadership, to be really open to what God wants for us and be prompted by his spirit,” Aodhan added. “I also just want to be able to foster a real culture of involvement and interaction, particularly between year groups.”
